Nicholas Hoult To Star In Jack The Giant Killer

Bryan Singer may have found his leading man for his upcoming film Jack The Giant Killer. After casting Stanley Tucci and Bill Nighy earlier this week, Singer is now in negotiations with Nicholas Hoult, whom he hopes will take the lead role in the film. The offer went out today and it is likely that Hoult will take it. While mostly an unknown, he’ll become familiar to audiences this spring when he stars in X-Men: First Class, which Singer produced. According to Deadline:

Jack the Giant Killer is a scary revisionist take on the Jack and the Beanstalk mythology and Hoult will play a farmer who leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom to rescue a kidnapped princess
